MADISON - Investigators have accused a man of bringing four homemade bombs into the Wisconsin Capitol.

Kvon Smith was booked into the Dane County jail Tuesday. Police have recommended prosecutors charge him with four felony counts of possessing a Molotov cocktail, which generally consists of a bottle full of a flammable liquid and a rag fuse.

Police also have recommended one felony count of creating a bomb scare, one felony count of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne will decide what charges, if any, the man will face.

Police learned the man had posted a threat to the capitol on Facebook and arrested him when he entered the building Tuesday afternoon hours before Gov. Scott Walker's State of the State address.
